Just wanting a little advice for a beginners DMX set up. I've been working with max/msp/jitter for a while now with audio and midi, and have had a few idea's for projects that would require turning other items on or off via a computer/sequencer.
So I've researched my way into the world of DMX, and this is what I'm thinking of getting:
An enttec DMX USB Pro
a Elation Control DP-415 4-Channel DMX Dimmer
a Chauvet DMX-4 Dimmer/Relay Pack
The idea being that I can control up to 4 different channel (not sure if this is correct terminology) of on/off information to devices that would usually plug straight into a wall outlet.
Granted, I'm in australia, so I have to get adapters to edison plugs, and make sure voltage and everything are ok. Speaking of which, the Chauvet has a step down transformer in it, so I'm leaning towards that at the moment.
Any comments welcomed! I don't have any peers doing this sort of work with their art!
Many thanks! - ToddAK
